This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
Part of the art of asking a question here is knowing what to add to your post and what not to ask. Your post contains a gabillion lines of irrelevant code, but doesn't contain enough description of the problem, and this may be why there's a significant delay in your getting a decent answer because who wants to slough through all that code, not even knowing what your problem is? Your code should just contain the absolute minimum required to show your problem, and if possible, compile without need of outside dependencies (such as VIM classes or whatnot).
For instance, this would show your problem:
Then you'd state that at the indicated line, the compiler complains that JDialog has no constructor that takes MainFrame.ButtonAction, String, boolean as parameters.
If you did this, we'd be able to tell you that the "this" in the JDialog constructor call refers to the ButtonAction class object not to the MainFrame class object, and to reference an outside class from an inner class, you need to qualify the this keyword with the outside class name. Thus "this" becomes "MainFrame.this":
Then you could use this information to change line 271 in your program from
Sorry about the lecture, but it was somewhat painful to go through all that code, and so if I can ease the suffering of others in the future, then I've done some good!
Also, if you read the FAQ on how to ask questions here, you'll see all this spelled out but perhaps in a better way. Happy coding!

Thank you, and my apologies. In the past I've been asked to post the entire code that causes problems, when I've only posted a snippet, so I was trying to avoid that issue. I will try to do better next time.
